North Carolina and Duke will square off in its earliest rivalry contest since 1926 under the lights on Saturday at Wallace Wade Stadium (7pm, ESPNU). The Tar Heels (5-2, 2-1) and Blue Devils (5-2, 2-1) last met in October in 1938 and last played this early in the season on Oct. 16, 1926. These two rivals, separated by an eight-mile stretch of U.S. 15-501, had played in the season finale in 63 of the previous 68 years. (Inside Carolina)
